What We Do
Medical Teams Abroad
Stretching across international borders to provide essential medical care in local communities, we offer healthcare services, as well as health education, food and school supplies and clothing in our “host neighborhoods.” Offering free healthcare to anyone in need, this program has facilitated care for over 3,000 people in the past 6 years.
At times, our Medical Teams Abroad face cases that are urgent and dire, but cannot be treated locally, as they require more extensive care than can be provided in their local communities. Through Blanca’s Kids, we are able to provide these children with free airfare, housing and care, while they receive free medical care on Long Island. Following their treatment here, Blanca’s Kids continues to ensure that they receive the continued medical treatment they require in their own countries.
Blanca’s Operating Rooms
In order to offer more continuous care, Blanca’s House is constructing four operating suites at El Centro Misionero de Salud “Maria Leonor Aguiar” in conjunction with the nonprofit foundation El Cielo para los Niños de Ecuador. A three year project that will entail design and construction, as well as the education and training of local staff, will enable us to offer consistent medical care in this rural community in Ecuador.
Offering the unique opportunity to introduce young people from Long Island to medicine, our Junior Volunteer Program allows students to join Blanca’s House on missions, where they volunteer and observe in and out of the operating rooms.
